limbaugh is pushing the nazi theme, comparing on his website the obama health care logo with the nazi swastika and devoting plenty of air time comparing the president's the united states and house speaker nancy pelosi to adolf hitler. >> the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika. there are far more similarities between nancy pelosi and adolf hitter than between these people showing up at town halls to protest a hitler-like policy. that's being heralded by hitler-like logo. oh, another similarity. obama is asking citizens to wrap each other out, like hitler did. >> he's just like hitler. you know what that means? he deserves, right? that's where the actual republican party, the would-be responsible adult, opposed to health care reform. rnc chairman michael steele is going for the, who me? approach saying there is absolutely nothing to do with encouraging angry town hall protests. mr. steele said in a conference call, we're not encouraging people to be angry. some people that's how they express frustration, but that's not something deliberately coordinated by me or any

! greta: one person says that it is less an opposition and more like astroturf, and rush limbaugh does not like it. >> i find itç interesting that the democrats are starting to refer to these towncar meetings as unruly mobs, we cannot promise security -- we are referring to these town hall meetings as unruly mobs. no, these are citizens. what these democrats are accusing you of doing it at these town-hall meetings is exactly what obama taught people to do. heç is the community agitator. he is the community organizer. he is the guy who taught people to show up at events over and over again and read people up, tear them down, disrupt them, and make sure it does not happen, and now, it is happening to them, it is not a ginned up, is genuine. -- not gin up. it is genuine. -- not ginned up. >> i will answer any questions they have. if they want to come over to the white house and answered line by line what is going on, i will be happy to do that. greta: but is president obama even going to read this bill? listen closely to press secretary robert gibbs. >> will be president read the enti

when you look at the polls. gregg: rush limbaugh increased the ante, calling deaths morocco -- calling barack obama hitler. some people found that offensive. look, are both sides not in a way guilty of inciting anger and obliterating good constructive civil discourse? >> absolutely. it is funny that nancy pelosi would say that they are opposed to obstructing other viewpoints. if they take that when it comes to speaking on the house floor, they might be more willing to listen to republican amendments. we reported this on human events. we have actually found some postings on craigslist for groups like summer for change, where it looks like democrats are recruiting people to come to the town hall as well. gregg: the president is asking people to back out people whose e-mail seems fishy. come on. is that not hypocritical for a former community organizer to complain about community organizing? >> this is more about setting a straight. if the democrats often not fight back, there is no way it will get through. republicans organizing in a town hall meeting tomorrow, going up there to defend h

is afraid of rush limbaugh, apparently, because he is encouraging all this stuff. >> the democrats are pulling a rabbit out of a hat, and the republicans are handing the democrats their rabbit. the democrats have no argument. they have no fathers. they -- they have no facts. they don't really have a bill. if people were really just to stand up quietly and civilly raise questions, the money doesn't add up, the c.b.o. has said that you say it is going to control costs but it increases it by a trillion dollars. all of this stuff, it's really out there. they would be winning these debates as they were before the town halls. what is happening is this is causing a backlash. it is completely unnecessary. it is shooting yourself in the foot. if you want to demonstrate, you want to shout, do you it outside carrying a sign. when you walk inside, you ask a question, is this going to have two effects? one, a public opinion will make people unsympathetic to those who oppose the bill, and secondly, it is going to give a great excuse for the democrats when congress returns to push a partisan bill

like rush limbaugh among them. that is a simulation of the fine we have been discussing, which is dollar for dollar of their total operating costs. just to be fair. glenn: so it's not a fine if you're a conservative radio station? >> he has laid out a road map for liberal attacks to attack conservative and christian talk stations, however. glenn: ok. >> you said forget the fairness doctrine. a month after his report came out he wrote a report called "forget the fairness doctrine" in which he uses a way for them to threaten licenses if they are politically opposed to what they're saying on the air. glenn: it is all localism. >> an media diversity. glenn: yeah. they will take those licenses, and keep everybody afraid to put anything on the air. if they do put something on the air, somebody can challenge it, they can take that license away from them at the end of the year, and give it to some acorn-like group, or some minority group, and then you have lost that radio station. >> it's freddie mac and fannie mae for the radio industry is what it is. glenn: first of all, how long do

in for the great rush limbaugh. for people who don't know that microphone is really gold. >> as you well know, it is goal p--- it is gold. sean: in my first five minutes the microphone fell to the ground, oh, no, my career is over. >> i'll try not to do that. sean: you do a great job. let's talk a little bit about the polls. the president's approval rating, every reputable poll shows he's losing ground and health care is losing ground. what's your analysis? >> his personal rating is coming down to meet the unpopularity of his policies. basically it's been a few weeks since "newsweek" said he was like a god. and the more he connects with the policies the more he's a 50-50% like his predecessor, and i think most people, a lot of people really believe he was a post partisan centrist, pragmatic, physically conservative figure that he campaigned as. and as you and a few others pointed out, he's not, the extreme left wing is where he's lived all his life and has a transformtive agenda people don't want. sean: we discussed this with dick morris, his floating this trial balloon about eliminating the

limbaugh comparing nancy pelosi and the democrats to the nazis. that comes on top of those aechbt-obama town halls that featured at least one person carrying a sign that accused obama of having a nazi-style health plan. >> just say no! just say no! just say no! just say no! >>> as we pointed out before, this is a well-organized set of protests. those mob scenes are supported in part by a group called freedom works, and today the afl-cio, the labor organization announced it's going to send people to town halls as well to confront the anti-obama teams. we have organizers on both sides tonight to show the fight right here on the set. >>> plus, the battle for america. the story of the most exciting presidential election of our times. why did ted kennedy break with the clintons and support obama.

this into people's heads. have they not? >> yes, they shout all day, rush limbaugh and all of rest of them, that this is a trojan horse for a single payer plan, and it is, you know -- it is possible that over time, this will morph into something that resembles single payer, but it's not right now, an the insurance companies are in no danger of going out of business under this bill, under any version of this bill. so if we do end up with a single payer plan, it won't be for many, many years, and people argue to the contrary are just lying about the particulars of this program. obama by design did not move to single pay because he realized that the country wasn't ready for it. >> we have news that cash or clunkers has just passed which we'll get to detail the ex-next a minute. this last piece of tape, the heart of the thing. the last question went into a log diatribe asserting the president would somehow get his legislation passed without congress. just go and make it happen, he's dictator obama not the president, and she ended with this piece of tape. >> i don't believe sincerely -- i don't

chosen political calculation over courage. it's not surprising people like rush limbaugh -- what is surprising is that few in the senate who are conservative are willing to stand up for truth instead of the fringe. >> speaking of lies -- the government involvement is unconstitutional. do you agree? >> i haven't heard the quote. i would not say it's unconstitutional. >> so, she's wrong? >> if that's all there is to quote, i don't agree. if you're talking about who's misleading -- the president is tauging about a deficit -- >> how is he misrepresenting his previous stances, given the current system, he believes that the public option is the way to go and to protect the private health insurance market. what have you heard? >> in 2003, he said i for one believe in a single payer health care system. >> and said that he was starting the system from scratch. >> i don't believe he said that. also, he has said as many liberals have said, that this would lead to a single payer health care system. if people are confused, the president needs to go back and address this. >> sam, you get the l
